Course Description

This course is designed to help educators better understand how ecosystems are responding to changes in the climate system and provide information that can be used to inform class activities about how climate change is impacting plants and animals.

The primary goal of the course is to help educators better understand changes that have been observed to the climate system and how plants and animals are responding to these changes. A second goal of the course is to provide material on climate change impacts that can be integrated into classroom teaching at the 9-12 grade level.
